The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life. John 6:63 NLT
Somewhere we have all bought into the lie that says, “I got this under control; I can do this myself”. Really? You can control your life??? When we get frustrated trying that, then we start thinking, “I can control others”! It’s no wonder we lose the, Joy of the Lord so quickly.
Thinking we are in control is like the man walking down the street dragging a log chain when another man said to him, “why are you pulling that log chain?” The man with the chain replied, “Have you ever tried to push one?"
Dear one, notice the connection between the Words and the Spirit. Instead of “pushing” for control, why not surrender the control of your life to the Word and the Spirit? Tell the Lord you give the controls over to Him. It’s much more pleasant!
